188: Evaluating Your Relationship with Alcohol, with Heather Lowe, Founder of Ditched the Drink

Alcohol is integrated into our current culture to celebrate, socialize, relax, and cope. Especially during this pandemic, memes and jokes about increasing alcohol consumption, virtual happy hours, and quarantinis abound. Today’s guest, Heather Lowe, founder of Ditched the Drink, believes in the benefits of evaluating and understanding your relationship with alcohol.

Heather, like many of us, grew up in a community where liberal alcohol consumption was the norm. Her background in social work, HR, and sales, as well as her passion for helping others, live their fullest and most meaningful lives resulted in founding Ditched the Drink, offering both individual and business resources to evaluate their relationships with alcohol.

In this episode, Heather shares her history with alcohol, the reasons she decided to quit drinking, and the benefits she’s seen as a result. She discusses the factors that might cause some people to be more likely to develop unhealthy relationships with alcohol, and how corporate acceptance and focus on alcohol negatively impact workplaces.

Heather leaves listeners with a tangible tip they can use to start shifting the relationship with alcohol in their own organizations and gives us a closer look at the work she’s doing through Ditched the Drink.
